Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel and Conference Center Colorado Springs
Better then I expected!
Purchased the room on the internet, then after reading some reviews, we were nervous, but figured for the price we paid, we could afford to walk out and go somewhere else. The staff were very friendly, nice and eager to please. The room was clean as any of the other hotels where we had stayed on this vacation. Also the rooms had been remodeled recently. However, the hotel is old, the resturant was not in opperation that evening, but they shuttled us to a very nice resturant not very far away. All in all for the price we paid, our experience was fine.
Loved the LE BARON
I booked this hotel online and then read all these reviews.but don't believe everything you read. we got there and everything was wonderful. the hot tub was awesome. the pool a little cold for my blood. the rooms were just as good as any other hotel. the staff was excellent. the only complaint was i kepy losing my money inthe coke machine, which they refunded. i would stay here again any time. It was wonderful. these people who were unhappy were from another planet. stay here it is worth it!
Less than Expected
Booked the hotel online. The lobby was a true representation, but the rooms were lacking. We just wanted a cool room and a quite place to sleep. The 1st room's A/C stopped working within 30 minutes. The 4th room finally had a working A/C. But after about an hour the noise and racket from the unit made it impossible to sleep, and we travel with ear plugs! We will not be staying again, nor should you.
Nice Older Hotel!
This is an older hotel just west of downtown Colorado Springs in an older neighborhood. The staff was VERY friendly going out of their way to please us. Being an older property, it had a few issues but evidence of remodeling work was apparent. There is an onsite restaurant with a very limited menu.
One big concern I had was security and safety. The last night we were there, I was looking for something out of my vehicle in the dark parking lot. I was approached by 2 people trying to pan handle some money. Fortunately, they went on their way but given the darkness and no barrier between the street and neighborhood, it could easily have gone bad.
What a dump! Do not stay there.
What a DUMP of a hotel, this hotel should be closed or bulldozed. The overall appearance of this hotel, I would never recommend or ever stay there again. In otherwords don't waste your money!
We have been under renovation since March of this year. All our guest room balconeys have been remodeled along with our second and third floor guest corridors. The parking lot has been resurfaced and we remodeled our lounge by adding seven new television monitors and furniture. These projects along with many others are scheduled to be completed by mid June. We are truly sorry you have experienced the inconviences of our renovation projects. We trust that these projects will enhance our hotel to those future travelers.
What a wonderful hotel!
What a wonderful hotel staff! From the sales and catering staff to the front desk staff, I would recommend this hotel to anyone! They all did a fantastic job!
The hotel is certainly not posh, but a good value for the money. It could use a little "sprucing up", but all in all was what we would expect for what we paid. The best part was the friendly service.
Everyone we came in contact with was anxious to please. The breakfast coupons were a great value -delicious. With a rental car, we had no problems getting anywhere we wanted to go.
Needs lots of repairs
Lobby is impressive but rooms need reparis and paint, poorly lighted, swimming pool missing tiles, hot bath not working, and exterior of place in need of paint. No questions asked when you leave. I would not stay there again.
Lobby is beautiful and impressive, our room was neither. There were problems with our TV (they were fixed quickly), the air conditioner was very noisy, the bathroom was dingy and while we were close enough to walk to the downtown area, the neighborhood made us very uncomfortable after dark. We will not be staying there again until the rooms are upgraded.

This is when it gets hard. You get sort of attached to the girls and start to see personalities. Some are very obvious...you know they won't make the first cut. But still, you feel for them. Crying in the parking lot, parents consoling, and sometimes parents upset. But with life comes adversity. We went from 150 kids, down to 92, and now we have 70. All want one of the twelve spots. Two more cuts to go. ...

On the road at 9:30 anticipating an 8 hour drive home. The wind was relentless. It blew all the way until we crossed Raton Pass on the New Mexico border. I know that it gusted to 40-50 mpg at times. The sky was a beautiful blue the whole day to home. The horizon in the area north of Lubbock to Amarillo was filled with dust. I can see why they called this area the "dust bowl. A snow storm ...
... trees broken up by yellow-green meadows. We were still high up at 9000 feet. The air was cool and dry as a bone. Another small pass and we entered the lower and more populated Florissant Valley, known for the Florissant Fossil Beds NM. The valley was once wetter and cooler which accounts for the huge millions years old petrified redwood stumps. Today, the towns and countryside were dotted with pretty barns and surrounded by round grassy hills. The next and last ...
... are hoping to get there this weekend.
Roger is calling me achy-breaky butt today, as I am pretty bruised up and sore from my shower incident yesterday. Not as young as I used to be.
And that's all we have to say for today.

"A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving." (although it will be good to be home).
... Feeling the brisk, fresh air against my face and gazing across the blue sky and broad expanse quickly reminded me of what I love and miss about Colorado. I love the radiant warmth of the sun while at the same time feeling the refreshing autumn breeze. Visiting the rocky canyons and the swaying suspension bridge at the Royal Gorge was a flashback to the days of taking our annual trip to Canon ...
